The whole of Saturday will be devoted to things Scottish, particularly to a Scottish sporting and cultural festival that is known as Highland Games. It is not only in Scotland that these events take place. Wherever in the world the Scots live, they want to show off there physical strength and dancing prowess and encourage the non-Scots to join in. The Highland Games in the park of the Sychrov chateau have already become a tradition and are, arguably, the biggest annual event on the continent of Europe, outside Scotland.

This year it is going to be the 19th year, when participants from the Czech republic and other countries, and not least Scotland, too, converge on Sychrov in northern Bohemia (about 50 miles north of Prague) to demonstrate, and compete in, weight lifting, caber tossing, highland dancing, country dancing, piping and drumming. There is always plenty of haggis to taste, and an opportunity to wash it down with a few wee drams, or with Irn Bru if you want to stay sober. There will also be an open air market with Scottish and other wares, artisanry and art work. On the way back to Prague we will stop off at a country pub for dinner.

August 25, Sunday

AM

departure after breakfast

Today‘s breakfast is included in the price of your hotel room, but shortly afterwards it will be necessary to leave your room and, should your traveling arrangements be for later in the day, arrange with the reception to keep your luggage in a safe place. In that case you may still manage a brief sortie into the city centre.

 

Program may change without notice.
